This is a great way to do a delicious tea cup with fresh ingredients. Chantal tea kettles are one of my favorite tea recipes, and, as a bonus, their flavor is super-fresh. It’s pretty sweet, and there’s no need to use it in place of the usual tea cups.
I got the idea for chantal tea kettles from a trip to a chai tea plantation in the Philippines and my family’s trip to Asia in the 1980’s to visit relatives. There’s no way in hell I’d go back, but they make a really good chai tea, and here are a few things I’ve found to be tasty and delicious in the process.
First off, I find these bowls very difficult to clean (I know, I know, theres a lot of stuff in there). So I have an old bowl I found in the basement, so I dont have to put soap in it. And I have a few things I made from recipes Ive found on the internet to help get rid of a lot of this stuff. I also found a recipe for homemade chai tea in a book called “The Simple Art of Tea”.
Chai is a very relaxing tea, and it can be quite bitter if it’s not prepared correctly. The way to prepare chai is to add one teaspoon (0.5ml) of loose leaf tea. Then, add one cup (250ml) hot water, and stir until it’s all dissolved. Pour into a cup and enjoy.
Well I have to admit, I got this from my mother. She said it was the best tea she ever drank. I didnt get that from any of the books Ive read about tea, or the tv shows I watched, but I suppose those things are way more accurate, and Ive heard about them.
There are quite a few different types of chai teas. I am not a fan of the bitter kind like you get from a Chinese restaurant, so I prefer to add loose leaf tea with no added sugar or other flavoring. For a less bitter version of chai, you can simply add hot water. I find chai is a great beverage when served hot or cold, and I think that is a testament to the wonderful flavors that come from chai.
It is also a good idea to add sugar whenever possible, as it adds sweet, but not starchy, flavor. If you don’t like sweet things, or you don’t like to add sugar to tea anyway, you can add honey.
You can also choose between loose leaf, green tea, and black tea, though green tea is often the healthier option.
This is one of those things I think is great for beginners. It is simple and incredibly satisfying. I think that one of the benefits of not having to buy a full-sized pot of tea is that you can have more than one drink at a time. If you are new to tea and don’t typically drink it, you can make tea in a pot and then pour that tea over ice for the drink in the pot.
There are lots of varieties of teas available, and I have no doubt that you will find a variety of different types of teas that will fit your taste. I would suggest that you explore that option by visiting one of our online teavents. I find a variety of teas to be very convenient as I tend to have a variety of different types of tea on hand when I take my tea breaks.
